"'As thoughts turn to spring it's a great time to celebrate No~xh Dakota's number one industry," said Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring. "With our pro- ducers ready and anxious to get out into their fields and pastures, we want them to know that North Dakota appreciates all they do." Goehring said 23 ag-related or- ganizations, associations and agen- cies pmticipated in the event. "Most of these groups had dis- play booths and tables in the Me- morial Hall,'" he said. "We were glad to see legislators, Capitol employ- ees and visitors stopping by these displays to learn more about the vi- tal role of agriculture in our state." An awards ceremony recognized winners of the 2015 North Dakota Agriculture Day student poster and essay contests. The theme of this year's contest was "North Dakota Agriculture: Sustaining Future Gen- erations." Awardees included two students from the area, Sierra Schramm and Haylee Linstad. Schramm, a Park River fourth- Norq-h be& A grader, took second in the poster contest. Linstad, an Edmore eighth- gader, won the essay contest. Linstad's winning essay is as fol- lows: "Agriculture plays a huge role in American Society. Ahnost every- thing that we use, wear, and eat is made from things that farmers grow in tile fields in North Dakota. Even the fuel in our vehicles and our clothes are made from things grown in North Dakota. It's not just the things we use that are influenced by agriculture; but many jobs are also created by it. In North Dakota, twenty-four percent of the people are employed in agriculture related fields. "Agriculture is the number one industry in North Dakota, and about ninety percent of all its land is used for fanning. Each farm is about 1,260 acres on average. The famls in North Dakota produce more ed- ible beans, pinto beans, canola, flaxseed, durum and spring wheat than any other state in the US. We also grow enough wheat to make twenty-one and a half billion serv- ings of spaghetti. That is enough bread and spaghetti to send all over the U.S. "What the farmers grow here af- 'fects people everywhere, even peo- ple in cities and places outside of North Dakota. What famlers grow here can be transported to other states and even countries. North Dakota produces a lot of products because of agriculture and it affects many people all over tile world." Other winners include: Emily Gordel, a Fargo fourth- grader, won the poster contest. Re- ece Theel, a Bismarck fourth-grad- er, took third in the poster contest. Kylee Boltz and Zane Pittsley, both Killdeer eighth-graders, were the second and third-place winners in the essay contest. The winners received certifi- cates from the North Dakota De- partment of Agriculture and mone- tary awards from the North Dako- ta Bankers Association. The contests are held yearly around National Agriculture Day to celebrate the contributions of farm- ers and ranchers and to increase awareness of the importance of agriculture in daily lives. The con- tests are administered by the North Dakota Depalaxnent of Agriculture.
